The Cell is focused
on the molecular biology of cells as a unifying theme, with specialized topics
discussed throughout the book as examples of more general principles. Aspects of
developmental biology, the immune system, the nervous system, and plant biology
are thus discussed in their broader biological context in chapters covering
areas such as genome structure, gene expression, DNA rearrangements, the plasma
membrane, cell signaling, and the cell cycle.
Myelomonocytes are the
multipotent cells in the stage of blood cell differentiation, which mainly
comprise blood monocytes, tissue macrophages and subset of dendritic cells. The
present volume shows an extensive area of current immunology research.Topics
covered includes: Phenotypic Markers and Functional Regulators of Myelomonocytic
Cells, Dendritic Cells, The Biological Function of Kupffer Cells in Liver
Disease, The Role of Monocytes or Macrophages in HBV and HCV Infection,
Myelomonocytic Cell Lines in Modeling HIV-1 Infection of the Bone Marrow.
This book is written to clarify some aspects of stem cell biology, their
characteristics, assessment of damage to cells during ex vivo manipulation and
also their role in a model of cancers. Topics covered includes: Regulators of
the Proliferation of Hematopoietic Stem and Progenitor Cells During
Hematopoietic Regeneration, Hematopoietic Stem Cell Niche, Hematopoietic Stem
Cells in Chronic Myeloid Leukemia.
This book is divided in
to two sections. Section A introduces cells, the molecular and structural
organizations of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, cell division, nucleic acids,
colloidal systems and techniques in cell biology. Section B starts with the
history of genetics and moves on to genetic code and chromosomal theory. This
section also covers mutations and variations, elements of population genetics
and the application of genetics in biotechnology, agriculture, medicine and
This note covers the following
topics: Protein Structure and Function, The Flow of Information: DNA to Protein,
Ribosome, mRNA, and tRNA direct the Synthesis of Proteins, Gene Regulation, DNA
Packing and Organization, Cell Cycle and Division, Cell Signaling, Cell
Junctions, Cell Adhesion and ECM, Nervous System.
